However, being an Arizona broker I suspect you put an offer in on a short sale and may be frustrated or lost interest. Until the inspection period ends (10 days standard if not modified) AFTER BOTH LOANS AGREE TO ACCEPT THE SHORT SALE IN WRITING there is effectively no contract - that is stated in the short sale addendum.
Agents in other states really have no perspective on our market.

If the expiration date on your offer has elapsed the offer is void. If the offer was rejected by the seller it is void. Your Realtor or attorney should be consulted on this.

Prior to expiraton, a notice should be given (best in writing) that an offer wants to be withdrawn.
Good luck with your situation.
If you are being represented by an agent (which is not noted in your question) then you really need to ask he/she where you stand in the offer acceptance process. We as agents are not allowed to interfere with an existing agent/client relationship. Best of luck to you!
Read your offer completely to see what it says and work with your agent.
Both Bill and Ann have provided good advise to you.
The one thing I would stress is to make sure you are working with a licensed Realtor in your state, preferably one who is acting as your buyers agent. Your agent can quell any fears you have, and answer these type of questions.
If you think the offer wasn't signed, but really was, then it would a ratified contract which is a legal and binding document.
